About Us

SAFE Animal Squad is a group aimed at 8-14-year-olds who know animals’ lives matter and who want to help all animals in New Zealand. SAFE Animal Squad members receive three newsletters a year and get the latest SAFE Animal Squad news. Members can even have their stories and pictures shared on the SAFE Animal Squad website.
